ST. JOHN’S, NL
– College of the North Atlantic (CNA) and Memorial University are again joining forces to host the 24th annual Career and Graduate School Fair.
Employers, organizations, government agencies and post-secondary institutions from across North America will be at the Field House on Memorial University’s St. John’s campus Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
It's an opportunity for participants to network, meet with local, national and international organizations and industry leaders, who can, in turn, recruit students and graduates from two of the province’s public post-secondary institutions.
CNA and Memorial University have collaborated on this initiative for a number of years to offer a comprehensive career and graduate school event for students and alumni that also provides them a direct connection with business and organizations to discuss their employment and education needs, or help with career direction.
This year, more than 130 local, national and international exhibitors will be at the fair. Click here

Shirley Woodward, CNA’s Associate Vice President of Student Services, says this year’s Career and Graduate School Fair is yet another exciting opportunity for the college to partner with Memorial University and offer a venue that’s filled with career prospects for today’s labour market.
“This event will continue to open the doors for many students and graduates, and provide the ideal platform for them to network with industry experts and educational prospects to pursue graduate studies,” said Woodward. “There is a huge skilled labour shortage out there, and events like this one helps bridge the gap between who is available to work and who is hiring. CNA is proud to be a major contributor to this showcase of expertise and we look forward to the synergy created by the day and hearing the success stories that will emerge from it.”
Dr. Jennifer Browne, Director of Student Life at Memorial, says the fair is a great opportunity for students and alumni to network and make valuable career connections with employers and professional schools.
“Participants can engage with exhibitors to learn about a variety of employment and further education prospects, including new graduate positions, summer employment, co-op placements and graduate programs,” said Dr. Browne. “All exhibitors are interested in talking to and recruiting Memorial University and CNA students and alumni. I encourage students and alumni to invest in their future and drop by to meet the numerous recruiters visiting campus. We are all working together to support students’ successful transition to the labour market or further educational endeavours.”
